Raise your hand if you drove at least one old Buick this weekend

Recommended Posts

Quick question. What do you consider "old" as it appears in the title of this forum?

The definition of old is whatever the poster wants to make of it. I would not want to place any limitations, and might even consider my 2013 to be "old" now.  For me, personally, the "old" term just does not apply to my daily driver, which is the 78 Estate Wagon. It's almost 40 years old and I drive that practically everyday, but don't post about that one.  But that does not mean others have to follow that line of reasoning.

To me ;

an old Buick is straight 8.

a new Buick is 1967 or newer 

Where do the Nailheads fit in?

"Old" cars have running boards.

We drove the LeSabre about 30 miles to a car show in Denton, TX today.  It was a smaller show of about 75 cars at a classic car restoration shop but alas, only one Buick. :(

May have only been one Buick but it was a beauty!

That's not always a bad thing. You meet a lot of nice people with their prizes. You learn things about other cars too. And you might kill a few Chevrolets in the mean time.?

Drove two this weekend. 

 

Took my 70 GS455 convertible over to a friend's house who has a 70 GS455 coupe that he bought brand new in 1969, and we found a nice winding road and took turns driving each other's car.  Was a blast, and a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday!

Also drove 2!  Took Reatta for top down ride Saturday and then the 57 for an Easter drive!

I put about 400 miles on the Skylark between yesterday and today. Drove down to Shippensburg, PA, then up to Carlisle to visit a friend and take in the Spring Carlisle event. Not very many Buicks for sale in the corral, but there were a '39 and a '57 that caught my eye. There was also a '78 Regal just like the one I bought new back in the day. It was the first new car I bought. Had fun, despite the rain.

I've never seen the Reatta tail at night. Impressive!    ^_^   Hats off, thanks

 

- maybe this finally explains the quadruple Reatta threads as to ROA....

Uh oh -- if she keeps that up it won't be long before you're both fighting for the keys!  (Maybe you shouldn't have been so quick to sell Goldie...  :unsure:)

The Reatta forum has been going since 2000; the ROA forum since 2006. But there's still a huge difference between the two.  It's either a popularity issue or a technical difficulty issue.  You can decide.
